MFA Thesis Show, May 1997

Photographs, like distant memory, float in and out of focus.  They 
rebuild a past based on remembrance, a thin gauze veiling truths.  
It is in our nature to have "selective" memory, and similarly 
I have selected photographs from my family album.  Using these images 
as a point of departure, my work involkes the melancholia of the past 
superimposed with objects, such as a mask or a veil, that lends the 
work new meaning.  Completely divorced of its' origins, this work 
attempts to add associations previously absent as I recycle familiar 
pictures with loaded psychological meaning.
